Some might say that anyone born from the seed of a demon has to be evil. She is the definite proof that this is not necessarily the case. Maybe everybody is redeemable. Allissa is in many ways the portrait of a knight. She is honorable and quite noble. Most important to her is to protect those she consider to be unable to protect themselves.
Still, she is not really prefect. She has a lack of patience when dealing with those who anger her and she does have a powerful temper. While she fights to control it, it sometimes finds its way out. She can be argumentative with even her allies at times although she can work with others. Allissa has many which she hates including her mother, her demon father, and many of the Federation of Magic including Lord Dunscon.
There are few who are really close to her and one of the few is her sister. She is extremely protective of Lorelie as well as trying to get her sister to act on her good side and not fall into the evil which their mother taught both of them, She was trained in the arts of lovemaking from an early age but never has been the lover which her sister was. She does not have that seductive quality which her sister does. Her sister's activities in that area can be quite entertaining to her.

Allissa is an identical twin to her sister Lorelie. She actually is not all that tall for a Cyber-Knight, even a female knight, only around five foot six inches tall in height. She has an extremely sensuous figure with a well defined figure and she is extremely beautiful. In many ways her figure is very classic with wide hips, a small waist, and large breasts. Her eyes are grey but where her sisters eyes almost undress any male near her, Allissa's eyes are far more curious. Her hair is a golden blond but for some reason it just seems to change to black when it gets further down. She does wear a bit in makeup including a bright red for her lips. Although she has a bit more muscle, the biggest difference between Allissa and her sister Lorelie is in their stances. While Lorelie struts, Allissa almost marches and walks much like a soldier.
In clothing, Allissa dresses quite differently than her sister. She usually wears armor and she has an extremely high quality set of armor which was custom made for her in England which she had later enchanted with Techno-Wizard enchantments. When not in armor, she prefers to wear simple tunics, maybe grey or silver in color, and only wears dresses of gowns extremely rarely.

Allissa's Story:

Allissa's mother is a Witch that originally came from the Palladium Fantasy World. The name "Sybelle Cartess" became extremely well know and she was hunted by many nations, ones which otherwise ignored most elements which do not rebel against the government themselves. Her acts were virtually unspeakable and thousands of victims are believed to have died at her hands.

With so many wanting her dead, her Demon Lord Mephisto, ordered her to go through a Rift to another world where she would no longer be hunted. It has to be wondered if it was due to him considering her to be valuable or if it was the children inside of her womb. She was pregnant with two half demon children, the children of the Demon Lord himself.

Once she crossed over, she was able to find allies in the Federation of Magic. Sybelle was able to convince Lord Alistair Dunscon that she could be a useful advisor and ally. As well, she became the lover of the lord although neither could ever been considered truly faithful to each other. Soon after settling, she had identical twin daughters. One was named Lorelie and the other was named Allissa.

The two girls were always raised, being told about how powerful they would become and about their great lineage from the Demon Lord. They should always be respectful to their great father. Lord Dunscon was in many ways considered to be a foster father to them but not respected in the same manner. The girls were raised to not care about those around them and to be incredibly callous.

Their mother was an expert on how to control a man through sex and it was something which she made sure that she taught her daughters quite well. In the tales she told, she suggest that she had been a courtesan before becoming a witch although she also suggested that she had been born into a church which specialized in healing the poor. No matter, it was quite clear that Sybelle was an expect at wrapping men around her fingers. The witch also taught about how much power can be generated when death magic and sex magic are used together.

Something happened with both of the Witches daughters with neither becoming what their mother really expected. Throughout her childhood, Lorelie pretended to be like her mother but she still had a sense of honor her mother never had and there were many things she simply would not do. Eventually she decided to go off on her own but she wanted to learn as much as she could. Some things she really did share with her such as being virtually unsatiable.

Allissa went far further in her rebellion against her mother. She never really could even pretend to be what her mother wanted and ran away when she was only around twelve years of age. For many years, Lorelie had no idea of what happened to her sister. As a girl Allissa had heard some stories about a group of knights which roamed around the countryside helping those in need. She dreamed of becoming one.

It took quite a while but she eventually was able to find a knight to train her. There was much concern about her being supernatural as far as becoming a knight and of course she would reject the cyber armor which many knights are fitted with. Several other famous knights such as Sword Mistress Megan Smith are also not fitted with the armor. Allissa was an incredible student and her drive allowed her to already become a full fledged knight at the young age of sixteen.

Allissa did what many knights do, adventuring from land to land, fighting those who would oppress or kill those weaker than them. Few could fight her and she soon began building a reputation. Her travels even included a visit to England where she was able to acquire a powerful magic sword which allows her to negate magic. This has allowed her to fight some extremely powerful spell casters although being a demi-god, magic has a hard time effecting her already. She thought about staying in England but eventually decided to return back to North America.

It is only comparatively recently that she has once again met her sister. By this time, he sister had become a powerful shifter. While Allissa is concerned with some of her sister's activities, her concern is more with trying to convince her to follow a more honorable path. As well, she is concerned with her sister's protection. Many of the individuals which Lorelie have allied or worked with are less than honorable. As well, the sorceress has made a number of dangerous enemies.
